Well I thought it was time I started to try and blog a little more often so that my posts aren't filled with boatloads of my projects every time! Now whether I will keep up is a different matter but we will see how it goes. I really want to try and get back into it more and get back to forums too. Well one particular forum that I really used to love posting in.
So I have lots of stitching planned over the coming weeks / months. I finally started the first part of the Lizzie Kate Hearts and Holly Mystery Christmas Sampler on Saturday evening. Let me tell you if you're on the fence about stitching this do it! I wasn't sure whether to sign up for it or not but I am so glad I did. I didn't want to put it down and have loved every single stitch so far. The second part is on the way to The Crafty Kitten so must get my stitch on before it arrives, and gets sent to me, and get part one finished. Of course I went perusing a US ONS' Facebook page and wished I hadn't as there was a picture of the second part. Oh my God I love it! Another reason why I love it! All I will say is "A Christmas Carol"! Anyway here's what I got stitched on Saturday. My friend Gill and I are starting our stitching afternoons up again so it'll be coming out again this afternoon!
I got more stitched on Cottage Garden Samplings January's Snowflakes. Not too much more to stitch now. Wonder if I can get this done for the end of October?
Friday and Monday were SAL evenings with Barb. Friday was the Jardin Prive Think Positive SAL. I have cheated a little on this and also took it to craft group with me yesterday so I could get caught up and finish part 1 which was duly done!
Then Monday was sheepy night! I was very pleased with my progress and I now just have the sun and the border to stitch on Simplicity.
Almost forgot my progress on LHN Song of the Seasons seen as I forgot to take a photo last post!
Last night should have been HAED QS Spirit of Winter Robin but I am thinking of maybe just stitching on it one evening a week until Christmas. It very much depends. I have signed up for a Christmas ornament exchange and once I get my partner's details I want to get on with that. I don't do much stitching for Christmas presents as there are so few people in my family left now who actually appreciate it so I tend just to stitch for one friend in particular and I'd like to get that done in good time too. I also have my annual ornament exchange with Chris and our traditional December SAL which will be Country Cottage Needleworks Silent Night which I am really looking forward to. I also found an ornament in one of the JCS ornament mags that I hadn't finished stitching, a photo of which, with more stitched now, you can see belowplus I have printed out the Plum Street Samplers SAL, Mary's Sampler, to start sometime when my suitable fabric arrives today. I had all the threads which is a miracle for me!
Still impatiently waiting for my JCS ornament magazine! Fingers crossed for this week!
That's all from me for today! I'll leave you with Meeko and sunset over Hornsea Mere :)
With much love
